"Our overall goal is to shine the sunlight on every government agency, including EPA to have openness and transparency. That's the only way we and the public really know what's going on and what's behind decisions. Unfortunately, EPA has been very resistant to really be open with....the proper information and documents that are entitled, not just to us, but to the public." - Sen. Vitter
